1950s Norman Norell Silk Brocade Cocktail Dress
This dress is incredible! Taupe silk brocade with a black circular design throughout. The bodice is low cut with small buttons up the front, sleeves that fall near the elbow and a fitted waist. The skirt is full circle and interlined with a cotton-like material that give the skirt structure, allowing in to lay in beautiful waves. The 10" of the skirt along the hem is lined in black silk. A beautiful dress by famed American designer Norman Norell, who is know for his impeccable construction techniques, simply stunning!
Condition Details: Very Good - There are some faint discolorations on the front of the bodice, just above the start of the buttons and on the first and fourth buttons. There is also some very faint discolorations under the arms. The back of the skirt has some discoloration above the hem on the left, and another smaller area above the back right hem. These issues re difficult to see and do not affect the overall look or wearability of the garment. This incredible dress presents beautifully!
